Newborn Piglets



These were born the day before yesterday

When I took these photos they were just minutes old,in fact, the last one nr. ten, was still catching it's first few gulping breaths ...
All ten are fine.
Also born on the same day were five lambs,one male the rest females!
As I am typing this my brown Chinese Goose is hatching baby geese..three out on the last count..
You don't want to disturb Mama Goose on her nest of hatching babies...ask me!!





"Aren't we suppose to suck on something??"





Fighting for a teat...

  15. Spring on a farm, truly the season of new birth. They are adorable, of course. Makes you want to pick one up and cuddle it.
